Meet Dr Sarah Pegrum

Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 5 Episode 48 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here. 

P Soupers - I'm delighted to introduce you to Dr Sarah Pegrum. Sarah is a clinical psychologist, peer reviewed ACT trainer, Curator of the ACT BODY Project and Author of the book - Break the Binds of Weight Stigma. Free Yourself from Body Image Struggles Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

In this episode - you'll find out a bit more about Sarah - in particular three pivotal moments in her life - which involved being told she wasn't enough, the loss of her mother, discovering ACT, moving from Australia to Canada and realising that she was hiding from the world AND feeling disconnected and unfulfilled and of course she shares what she did in response to that realisation. You'll also hear Sarah's song choice. Now - P-Soupers - at times the sound quality isn't perfect - I've tried every which way to enhance the recording for your listening pleasure, including a sound engineer - Soooo just a reminder there is a transcript if you don't catch every word and at one point - I do jump in and repeat Sarah's words - just so you don't miss out on her inspirational story due to a fade in the recording.

People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun, we're all about unlocking workplace potential with expert insights from Contextual Behavioural Science.

Another first for Season 5 is that I'm adding a transcript, wherever possible. There is a caveat - this transcript is largely generated by Artificial Intelligence, I have corrected many errors but I won't have captured them all! You can find the transcript by clicking on the three dots at the bottom left of the box below and selecting transcript.

You'll also find the shownotes, including all the useful links by clicking on Notes in the box below and scrolling.
